ABSTRACTPatients with septal or rhinoseptal deformities are often evaluated for surgery in our service. This is a retrospective study of children operated for this reason between January 2004 and December 2006. There were 99 patients divided into two groups: septoplasty group and septorhinoplasty group which included 60 children in the first one and 39 in the second. The most frequent symptom was nasal obstruction in both groups. Allergic rhinitis was common among the septoplasty group (46.6%); a previous trauma was recorded in the septorhinoplasty group (51.28%). Treatment was successful except in four patients of the first group and in two of the second group. No complications occured in any patient.
